    Disadvantaged car: Rami Kaukola
    Team: RPM

    Reported car: Mikko Korkiakoski
    Reported Team: FOR


    Description:






    Mikko came up the inside of Rami with no clear room to make the pass. As it's a 90minute race, moves like this should be punished as there is the whole race to go and not just a few laps. Rami suffered damage and dropped to position 13, costing us lots of points.

    No penalty imo.
    Rami closes the door way to hard. Mikko just had a look and you see it coming way before the corner. Its far from a extreme dive move on the inside. Rami just had to give more room and could avoid the incident. Can compare it abit to the Webbber Hamilton incident on Singapore.

    No penalty for the FOR team from the FDR team.

    Rami closes the door and there was Mikko. Rami could have seen Mikko so he could avoid the collision.

    Racing incident

    Real racing rules say that a defending driver (Rami) can shut the door at anytime he wishes as long as the attacking car (mikko) has not passed his real wheels. In this case Mikko wasn't close enough so its definitely a penalty. How high is up for the teams to decide

    If you shut the door when someone is next to you doesn't matter how far, you risk a incident. What did you expect Mikko to do jump away ?
    And if you ask me Mikko did pass the rear wheel of Rami.

    I thought we where not going to discuss anymore :)

    No penalty as the FOC car was pretty much on the inside and RPM car closed the line totally.Yes,it's a 90 min race..but let's say that FOC car was late on brakes and anyway it's not a forbiden move! 0 penlaty from MAG

    Could be considered a race incident, Rami had not enough room for overtaking, and Mikko having a car on his side would have to stay more wider. Overtaking too impetuous are to be punished to preserve correctness of the league.

    longest discussion on our forum about this one but in the end we vote for race incident with a remark that this a 90 mins race with possibly a better chance coming up in the next three laps or so.

    the rpm car as soon as he turns in probably lost sight of the tailing car this Mikko should of known and by sticking his car in where he did he was probably all to aware of the outcome.
